Top-Rated Vacuums for Pet Hair

Top-Rated Vacuums for Pet Hair | pets-info | Scoop.it

You could not live without your dog or cat, but you could do without the pet hair and dander that covers the entire house! Having pets makes house cleaning even more difficult, and without the right vacuum you will spend lots of extra time getting your carpets and upholstery pet hair free.

Different vacuum types can all get the job done. Here are some factors to consider when choosing the right pet hair vacuum for your home:

Upright vacuums offer excellent suction power and often include multiple attachments for cleaning upholstery and curtains. However, if you plan on carrying the vacuum up and down stairs be sure to check the weightCanister vacuums are typically the lightest vacuums, with long attachment heads to clean in those hard to reach places.Bagged vacuums minimize the mess when emptying the vacuum but require you to purchase new bags when full. Bagless vacuums require no replacement bags but can be messy when emptied. If you suffer from allergies or asthma you may want to opt for a bagged vacuum. The list below includes both types to best suit your needs
Using a hand-held vacuum is a great way to clean up pet hair in between more thorough cleaning sessions. Our list below includes the top-rated hand-held vacuums for cleaning up that unsightly pet hair

If you’re in the market for the best pet-hair vacuum, look no further. We have heard from thousands of customers looking to clean up the pet hair in their homes and have put together this list of top-rated vacuums based on their ratings and reviews.

From Pets To Plates: Why More People Are Eating Guinea Pigs

From Pets To Plates: Why More People Are Eating Guinea Pigs | pets-info | Scoop.it
Guinea pigs are popular pets in the U.S., but in parts of South America, they're a delicacy. Some environmental and humanitarian groups are making a real push to encourage guinea pig farming as an eco-friendly alternative to beef.

First off, my apologies if you find the image distressing (I have two guinea pigs in my house and I will not be showing this picture to my children). However, the fact that many readers might find this image disturbing but wouldn't think twice about the sight of chicken grilling on the barbeque highlights the cultural taboos surrounding what we consider appropriate food sources.  The tradition has diffused to the United States as more South American immigrants have come to the United States.  While the meat is more environmentally sustainable (less resources are required to raise one pound of guinea pig meat than one pound of beef), many potential costumers are leery to eat something that they consider a pet.

I can  see both sides of this, I would never eat a guinea pig because I grew up viewing them as pets. I think people are brought up a certain way and even when they move they take their customs with them.  I have a friend from china and lived there until he was 14 yrs old, he  had told me the city he was from they ate dog and cats. they view it as meat were we think of them as pets. 

Nathan Chasse's curator insight, February 28, 2014 10:26 PM

This article is interesting because it is taking into consideration the ecological benefits of eating what we consider unorthodox meats. Raising guinea pigs for food would apparently leave a substantially smaller carbon footprint over a large, high waste producing animal like cows. Culturally, in South America guinea pigs are considered a delicacy, but I can't see culture changing in the United States to the point where we would give up hamburgers for grilled guinea pig.
